Clean Out Your E-Reader Challenge - It Begins

The Clean Out Your E-reader Challenge starts tomorrow, and I have plenty of fodder to keep me busy for the month.  I have, literally, over 2000 free books I've downloaded.  Oops.  How did that happen?  In any case, I'm supposed to be making a list of books to get through, but I have so many I'm not really sure where to begin.  I'm going to go for a free-wheeling plan where I read whatever freebies on the Kindle and Nook (yes, I've got both!) I fancy.  Expect a goodly amount of mystery with some memoirs, travel, and general fiction mixed in.
